Digital information and digital networks are fundamentally changing how universities access, share, and use information for scholarship, teaching, and learning. The fundamental shift to using digital information to educate students and to share resources has caused sweeping changes in how many believe digital information should be accessed and protected. The Center for Intellectual Property at the University of Maryland is concerned with the impact of intellectual property law and policy on higher education and the digital environment.

Colleges, Code and Copyright, ACRL Publications in Librarianship no. 57, is the Proceedings of a symposium held by the Center in June 2004. The goal of the symposium was to assemble stakeholders to discuss the technological, legal, and practical issues that influence the dissemination of information on campus and the protection of intellectual property. The papers in this volume consider thematic tracks on a wide range of topics, including the intersection of copyright and higher education, the state of scholarly publishing, current copyright legislation, peer-to-peer file sharing, and best practices in digital rights management.
